Interior doors-black or white?

When we built this house, I was in a “white” mood.  I wanted everything white.  I wanted a white exterior, white walls, white trim…  But the one place I knew I wanted to be different was the interior doors.  We had done white in the past and it shows everything.  We have done wood, and though it is beautiful, and probably the most practical, it wasn’t the look I wanted.  At the time, I kept seeing a paint color by Benjamin Moore being praised in magazines as an alternative to black.  It is BM Iron Mountain, a dark charcoal gray, with a bit of brown in it to warm it up.  So that’s what we did, and I have really liked it.  It hides marks so much better than white and is a great contrast to the white walls.  We also had the grids (mullions) in the windows painted the same color.

This is the door I still dream about doing…
